Eco-friendly Bags are available since long in the markets. However, the use of such bags has been quite low owing to the low emotional value of the bags. for this reason tote bag with guitar graphic has been designed. This serves the dual purpose- one that of use of eco-friendly bags and the other, that of the bag being popular amongst youth and fun to carry.

It's simple, you add a windmill to the top of the car. Which is connected to the motor and to the battery. All you have to do is is start up the car like normal with fuel, then once you get going, the windmill spins and provides energy for the motor. The battery of the car can charge up and last the car for 10-20 minutes without the windmill spinning, so you can keep power at stoplights etc. The windmill car isn't about not using fuel for cars. It's about using less fuel (only for start-up and back-up energy).

The flying bicycle is an entertainment thermometer. It invites people who are overcrowd in the traffic or people that simply are passing by. It’s a proposal to generate sustainable and clean energy, using your own body. It is for all the ages, white and costless. Just get on and ride, the energy that you produce whill you twirl the pedals is like the energy which pushs the pinwheels. The more you ride, the more the pinwheels move! The flying bicycle is a proposal to change minds through a different life style. Use your energy, move foward and go far! Submitted by Rasputines.
´Til the last breath. The aim is to persuade the smoker to cast the stubs at the right place. The ashtray screen will give a random emoticon+sound answer when activated, rewarding the citizen for his kind act with a positive and funny gesture, trying to put a smile upon the smoker´s face.
Let’s make it fun to scoop dog poop! “Lucky Dog” will be a dog-shaped garbage bin that when used will bark at the user and issue a fortune cookie dog treat with the dog’s fortune for the day. Lucky Dog fortunes could include “You will be receiving a treat in the near future. Lucky Dog!” and “Dog-butt ahead. Lucky Dog!” A bag dispenser could be a source of income or simply free to encourage pick-ups. Since dog walks happen near meal times, restaurants could advertise on the bin or cookie wrapper. They could say something like “Congratulations!
What problem to solve? It's a problem that people don't wash their hands. After meeting friends, after a toilet visit or just after a day in the city. Unwashed hands can make you or the people you know sick, but that's easy to change. If we make washing hands fun, at hospitals or in public toilets, hopefully more people will start doing it. My idea is that we put a camera in the wash sink, faced towards you. When you start washing your hands, blur colours will appear in the mirror, following your hands move and you will be able to make art. That's my way of having fun.
The idea is pretty simple: Taking some bins and dressing them up in silly (green?) monster costumes and placing them around the city (parks?). When people get close to one, the monster's mouth opens to allow people to 'feed' it (throw garbage in). It works with a motion sensor that triggers an engine to open the monster's mouth. It could also play some sounds to get attention. You can even park your VW next to it and the monster will keep the villains away. Ninjas too. Submitted by Levi.
Have a giant basketball hoop over a plastics recycle been in any public high school. Like your glass recycler...have the hoop make noise and total points as drink bottles are recycled.
Same idea...different format. Big pinball type apparatus drop in recyclable at top it bangs off appropriate pinball type obstacles finally ca-chinging as it drops into the bin for requisite points.

The concept for our project is simple, we want to make washing your hands fun by making it useful as well. Since its invention in 1946, the Magic Eight Ball has become a common household item which has helped thousands of different people make decisions about innumerable subjects, and which has held the fate of many events, some of which we dare not speculate. Ah, to be indecisive, and have a magic device to give you the answers to your questions.
Crossing the road solely on pedestrian crossing? Not crossing with the red light? Unfortunately these rules are not always followed! Let's play the pedestrian while waiting for the green light! It's a game of ability and precision. Pedestrian should take a coloured gun located at the base of the traffic light and try to fire the red light on the opposite side of the road. Pedestrian compete with each others and could contribute to turn the green light faster when shooting well. The redlight turns from red ,orange ,amber and finally to green.
How to make people dry their hands using the hand dryer instead of paper towels? When someone move his/her hands above the hand dryer it turns on and at the same time the kaleidoscope. The person will see the kaleidoscope moving only when the hand dryer is turned on. Different kaleidoscopes should be installed in different places thus people will be interested every time they need to dry their hands.

We have become disconnected from the way we generate power and have allowed the use of fossil fuels to become a primary contributor to global warming. Powertopia is a fun, educational playground that teaches children and their parents about renewable energy, the principles of power generation and energy storage. By harnessing the energy that children naturally produce on playgrounds, we can develop their intuition of renewable energy principles. This can ultimately lead to a change in the way children interact with power and understand electricity. Submitted by Oliver Haas
The problem is that people don’t take time to recycle. The solution will be that we found a way to recycle and at the same time have fun. If you want to have fun and at the same time recycle plastic, cans, paper, glass, carton and used batteries you can go to the Machines to Recycle. Instead of using coins and wasting your money you can bring recycle things and you will play with machines. Each machine has different things, for example one will be of cans, you will give cans and then you can play.
1. This Fun Reversible Vending Machine looks like a regular RVM but with a computer screen and keyboards.
2. It operates like a game / social networking site, where users gets money in return for putting in recycled products and for correctly answering questions.
3. The questions are based on data from previous users, who when “playing” must; 1. put in a recycled product, 2. provide answer to a very basic fun facts question about oneself (like favorite color), and 3. correctly answer the fun fact question of the previous user.
A device to make people recycling cans. Looks like a regular can crusher, but it hides a bubble machine behind that releases bubbles and funny sounds when you use it. Also encourages people to look for more empty cans to crush and have fun while doing it. Submitted by Linus Oura.
Hi! My name is Steve and I'm a bunny. I speak for fun and nature. This video will show you how I would like to use the fun theory to help end an ecological problem for me and my animal friends. Using fun to encourage recycling plastic bags, we can brighten peoples days, help animals and reduce the use of plastic world wide. Please take a look and thank you for your time!
